I was wondering what your opinion of this set and rep scheme was for building long lasting strength and size.
I want to start with 5x5 at approx 75% of 1rm, and slowly work up to being able to do the weight for 5 sets of 8. When I can complete all reps, add 10kg for lower body and 5kg for upper and work on slowly increasing volume. Do you think this would be a good plan for the long haul? Also it seems to be quite self regulating, as when you reach upper rep bracket, you've obviously gotten stronger, then you increase intensity and start again.
